-- If you have ever had the desire to look through your most fashionable friend’s closet and borrow her style for a day, you no longer have to leave the comfort of your own bedroom thanks to the launch of Becauseishoptoomuch.com. The site is a customer-focused, interactive marketplace that allows users to buy, sell, and swap clothing and accessories from their closets. Because I Shop Too Much aims to combat the fragile economy by providing users with an outlet and opportunity to attain the low cost of high style.
Becoming a member is simple and starts with the user creating a profile on the site followed by a Paypal account. Once users have signed up for both, they can begin uploading photos of the items they wish to sell or swap and while there is no cost to use the site, the company collects 6% from each transaction. Users are encouraged to review one another based on their interaction, giving new members an easy way to feel secure about shopping.
“It’s not just about selling & buying clothes” assures Lisa Fergus, Founder. “We’re meeting lots of females out there – especially today – that are on budgets for a variety of reasons – family, school, the economy. They are bold, creative, & want to look great without paying premium retail prices.” “And the fact that friendships & social circles are being formed along the way,” as Kaitlyn Fergus, Founder points out, “well, that just may be the best part.”
Because I Shop Too Much is owned and operated by Sisters Marie LLC, an entrepreneurial start-up based out of Chicago, IL. In operation since 2011, the company thrives on the academic degrees earned by the owners in Media Relations and Communications as well as experience in public relations and blog writing.
